Waterbury Hospital recognized for quality treatment for patients suffering from Stroke, Heart Failure and Kidney Failure
Waterbury Hospital was ranked a high performing hospital by U.S. News and World Report for quality treatment of patients suffering from stroke, heart failure and kidney failure in recently released 2022-23 Best Hospital Edition.
U.S. News evaluates 15 specialty areas of care. In 12 of the specialty areas, rankings are derived from data sources, such as Medicare, and they include number of patients served, patient services and patient experience. The rankings started with about 4,500 hospitals, which represent virtually all U.S. community inpatient facilities.
The rankings are the latest in quality distinctions for Waterbury Hospital, which was ranked among the top 10 in the nation to receive the Coronary Intervention Excellence Award™ by Healthgrades. In addition, Waterbury Hospital is a Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Heart Attack in 2022, according to new research released by Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems. Earlier this year, Waterbury Hospital was ranked a three-star hospital by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, increasing by one star from the prior year.
“Our strong focus on quality care is showing results. I’m proud of the hard work being done here every day to provide quality care to patients,” said Waterbury HEALTH President and CEO Dr. Justin Lundbye.
Waterbury HEALTH has invested in new technology and added new sophisticated services for patients including transaortic heart valve replacement (without open heart surgery) and a new interventional radiology suite that provides additional services including more targeted treatment of liver cancers. Later this year, Waterbury HEALTH is adding to its neurosurgery services.
